“…Four days after the abortion, I got up to [go to the bathroom] and felt that something was not right inside. When I wiped, I glanced down at the wad of toilet paper in my hand, and saw my 12-week old fetus. Its head was smashed, and it’s eyes were on either side of its head. Its body was attached to the head, and only the right arm and hand remained. I was shocked and horrified by what I saw…”

“…As a detective, I am impressed with cases when they are evidentially diverse. Two witnesses to the same event are better than one. In a similar way, three witnesses are better than two, especially if they agree on their observations in spite of their individual peculiarities or differences. When I have multiple witnesses from diverse ethnic, social, economic or demographic backgrounds and these witnesses generally agree on what they say occurred, I reasonably adopt a higher level of confidence in their testimony…”

“This debate features Dr. Frank Turek of CrossExamined and Jeffery Jay Lowder, founder of Internet Infidels.

As Dr. Turek has stated, Lowder is a “gentlemen and a scholar.” Further, I would add that he is a breath of fresh air when compared to “new atheists” such as Dawkins and Krauss. Regardless if you agree with his conclusions or not, he will make you think hard about the arguments for and against God’s existence…”

“…What is this challenge? It is one that Alan Turing, in many ways the progenitor of modern computing, thought about. It states that you cannot write a program to tell if another program will run forever or eventually come to a halt. Turing in 1936 proved that such an algorithm, one that works for all possible programs, cannot exist. Robert Marks explains the thinking behind the proof, connecting it to other undecidable problems known from mathematics (such as Goldbach’s conjecture) and the work of Kurt Gödel (whose incompleteness theorem ruined Alfred North Whitehead and Bertrand Russell’s all-encompassing mathematics project). The big point, however, is that Turing’s proof sets insuperable limits on what algorithmic computers can do…”

“…The Royal Society and British Academy recently held a high-profile interdisciplinary conference on ‘New Trends in Evolutionary Biology’. Officially, the event was open to the widest possible range of criticisms of the Neo-Darwinian synthesis. Yet the invitation did not extend to proponents of intelligent design theory who have publicized most of the same criticisms of the synthesis. It would seem that the paradigm shift demanded by advocates of intelligent design would have been a step too far…”

“…And what of the “potential” for cures? After over 30 years, not very many mice have benefited from embryonic stem cell therapy, and to date there is no proven success with human embryonic stem cells. Embryonic stem cells are the least likely type of stem cell to help any patients. Their very nature—a tendency to incessant growth—means that they are much more likely to form a tumor than to form healthy tissue, and so embryonic stem cells risk the life and health of those who are injected with them…”

“…So, why would atheists begin to try and change the meaning of agnosticism and atheism to be somehow compatible? What is the advantage? Simply put, the so-called agnostic atheists don’t want to bear the burden of proving what they believe. By claiming that they believe in no God but they don’t know whether or not He exists, they think they have removed themselves from having to justify their non-belief. “I can lack a belief in God, but I don’t claim to have any knowledge of a god or Gods’ existence” is the way many would frame it…”

His maternal grandfather was an occultist and his grandmother a seer. Jung came to reject Christ in his youth and shortly after began his inward journey. Jung eventually filled the spiritual void with the occult and began communicating with a spirit guide named Philemon. Philemon was a “pagan” old man with the horns of the bull and the wings of a bird. Over time Philemon began to address Jung as “Christ”. This began his many paranormal experiences that led to his spirit guide introducing him to Abraxas, the devil god of Gnosticism. (Jung, Red Book, 205)…”

“…What broke the ice? What made me consider God’s existence a real possibility? The Lord of the Rings. I was a young teenager when I first read the Tolkien tomes, and it immediately captivated me. The fantasy world of Middle-Earth oozes life and profundity. The cultures of the various peoples are organic, rooted in tradition while maintaining a fresh, living energy. Mountains and forests have personalities, and the relationship between people and earth is marked by stewardship and intimacy. Creation knowing creation. Tolkien describes these things with beautiful prose that reads like its half poetry and half medieval history…”

Notice that these words were written between about 1400 BC and 400 BC. The question is: How did these Old Testament authors get this “inside information” on a person who would be born 1400-400 year later? Was something cosmic afoot?

“Those who hate me without cause are more numerous than the hairs of my head”(Ps 69: 4). “The kings of the earth take their stand and the rulers conspire together against the Lord and His Anointed One”(Ps 2: 2). “Even my friend in whom I trusted, one who ate my bread, has lifted up his heel against me”(Ps 41: 9). “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered”(Zch 13: 7). “Then I said to them, ‘If it seems right to you, give me my wages; but if not, keep them.’So they weighed my wages, 30 pieces of silver. ‘Throw it to the potter,’the Lord said to me—this magnificent price I was valued by them. So I took the 30 pieces of silver and threw it into the house of the Lord, to the potter”(Zch 11: 12-13). “They are striking the judge of Israel on the cheek with a rod”(Mc 5: 1). “I gave My back to those who beat Me, and My cheeks to those who tore out My beard. I did not hide My face from scorn and spitting”(Is 50: 6). “They pierced my hands and my feet”(Ps 22: 16). “My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?”(Ps 22: 1). “Everyone who sees me mocks me; they sneer and shake their heads: ‘He relies on the Lord; let Him rescue him; let the Lord deliver him, since He takes pleasure in him’”(Ps 22: 7-8). “They gave me gall for my food, and for my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink”(Ps 69: 21). “I am poured out like water, and all my bones are disjointed; my heart is like wax, melting within me”(Ps 22: 14). “Yet He Himself bore our sicknesses, and He carried our pains; but we in turn regarded Him stricken, struck down by God, and afflicted”(Is 53: 4). “He was oppressed and afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughter and like a sheep silent before her shearers, He did not open His mouth”(Is 53: 7). “They divided my garments among themselves, and they cast lots for my clothing”(Ps 22: 18). “He submitted Himself to death”(Is 53: 12). “He bore the sin of many and interceded for the rebels”(Is 53: 12). “You may not break any of its bones”(Ex 12: 46). “He protects all his bones; not one of them is broken”(Ps 34: 20). “They will look at Me whom they pierced”(Zch 12: 10). “They made His grave with the wicked, and with a rich man at His death, although He had done no violence and had not spoken deceitfully”(Is 53: 9). “For You will not abandon me to Sheol; You will not allow Your Faithful One to see the Pit”(Ps 16: 10). “You ascended to the heights, taking away captives; You received gifts from people, even from the rebellious, so that the Lord God might live there”(Ps 68: 18). “The Lord declared to my Lord: ‘Sit at My right hand until I make Your enemies Your footstool’”(Ps 110: 1).

“…Let’s spell out the danger: It is okay to talk about design in nature as long as we are referring to human artifacts (because ‘humans are not special, evolved so as to be unable to understand reality, and consciousness is an illusion’).

The question of how all that information got built up somehow is circumvented by assuming that we would not know if there was information anyway. That is the message of naturalism: Not that the evidence supports it but that we can’t know. Which means evidence does not matter.

The conflict between fine-tuning and the multiverse turns precisely on that point: The multiverse is an attempt to circumvent the evidence for fine-tuning on principle because the evidence does not matter…”

“…Because Jesus is the Logos, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Jesus used logic in his efforts to evangelize others. Jesus’ aim in utilizing logic is not to win battles, but to impart understanding or insight in the minds and hearts of his audience.

They will have, unless they are strongly resistant to the point of blindness, the famous ‘eureka’ experience, not the experience of being outdone or beaten down.3
